CARE SHOW2017 PREVIEW Care Show 2017

With Care Show 2017 fast approaching, Tomorrow’s Care reveals what and who you can expect to see there to help you plan your trip.

It’s that time again – the Care Show will return once more to the NEC Birmingham, from 10th-11th October, providing training, solutions and networking opportunities to support those connected to and responsible for the care of others.

“By condensing opportunities to learn, network and explore the latest market innovations over just two days, in one location, Care Show is an efficient way to stay up-to- date and further improve the lives of those living in the care system.”

Thousands of new products and services will go on display this year, providing an immersive experience for visitors to touch, play and learn about some of the latest innovations on the market. Visitors can meet with over 250 suppliers, including headline sponsor NH Group which will be showcasing its enhanced service offering. Exhibitors include DeVilbiss Healthcare (previously Sihil), everyLIFE Technologies, Shackletons, OSKA, FH Care, Teal Living, JLA, Renray Healtcare, apetito and Access UK.

A product of the Show’s first ever partnership with NHS England, the Integrated Care Zone education theatre will host a packed programme of case study presentations, delivered by some of the industry’s most respected thought leaders. With names soon to be announced, speakers from across the NHS will demonstrate firsthand how successful collaboration can be achieved between the NHS and social care providers.

Commenting on the venture, Care Show Brand Director Rebecca Pearce said: “This new partnership will provide free access to high-quality learning for care professionals at a time when the industry is dealing with ever-tightening training and CPD budgets.

With dementia being a very prominent focus in most care homes, managers, directors and owners can experience firsthand what it is like to live with the condition on a daily basis with The Virtual Dementia Tour. This tour aims to help people understand what it is like to live with dementia every day. Scary, isolating, confusing and emotional, this eye-opening experience must not be missed for those looking to further their understanding of the condition.

Another standout feature on the schedule is the Dementia in Care theatre. Chaired by Professor June Andrews OBE, speakers will share the latest advice to help care homes tackle dementia in business and services. Topics include how to deal with challenging behaviour, different ways care homes should prepare for dealing with a more needs-based audience.

Introduced for the first time to help care professionals pre- plan for the show, Care Connect is a fully supported one-to- one meeting program where registered visitors and exhibitors can arrange meetings ahead of the event using an online portal. Meetings can then be held either in the catered Care Connect Meeting Lounge, with a team of hosts on hand to ensure all meetings run smoothly, or on an exhibitor's stand.
